Steven Spielberg's film Lincoln leads the field with 10 BAFTA nominations, with nine each for Les Miserables and Life Of Pi.
The latest 007 film Skyfall secured eight nominations, including a nod for Dame Judi Dench for her performance as the spy master M in the Bond film.
The British star has been named on the shortlist for the Best Supporting Actress award alongside Anne Hathaway, who is nominated for her role in the big screen version of Les Miserables.
Dench's Bond co-star Javier Bardem is nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as villain Raoul Silva in the 007 film.
Skyfall is also nominated for Outstanding British Film and Original Music - a nod to Adele who provided the hit Bond theme of the same name.
Daniel Day-Lewis is nominated for the Best Actor award for his performance in the title role of Lincoln - Spielberg's biopic of the US president who led his country through the civil war.
He is up against stars including Ben Affleck and Hathaway's co-star Hugh Jackman.
Affleck could walk away with two of the night's biggest prizes after he was nominated for Best Director and Best Actor for his work on Argo - a thriller set during the Iran hostage crisis.
Dame Helen Mirren is nominated in the Best Actress category for her role in Hitchcock - playing the wife of the famous filmmaker.
The award for best film sees Lincoln and Les Miserables up against Affleck's Argo, Life Of Pi and Zero Dark Thirty - the story of the manhunt for Osama bin Laden.
Les Miserables is also in with a chance to win Outstanding British Film along with Anna Karenina, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Seven Psychopaths and the latest Bond.
The event, formally known as the EE British Academy Film Awards, will take place on Sunday February 10 at the Royal Opera House, in Covent Garden, with Stephen Fry hosting.
